Design for infrared light healer (from Wired) published anywhere?

  1. A much longer wavelength than near-IR LEDs as well, afair.
     
  2. OTOH, the wavelengths they mention in the article are on the short
    side for typical IR LEDs, so rather close to visible.

    Is that Philips light the same thing they used to put in motel
    bathrooms, greasy spoons, chicken incubators etc. ?

    As I understand it, the reason that a wart erupts from the surface
    of the skin is the virus needs a dryer climate in which to thrive.

    Covering the wart with duct tape holds in the skin's moisture, and
    wrecks the conditions the wart likes, and it dies.

  4. Vague memories that they used to sell it as 'Black Light',
    which would put it at about the same wavelength as the
    radiation from a lump of iron running at about 600C?
     
  5. Okay, so something quite different. The ones I mentioned are deep red.

    Best regards,

    If the stick was from a willow, perhaps it might work better. Willows
    (genus "salix" - get it?) contain salicylic acid, which is used to remove
    warts.

    Chewing willow also works to relieve headaches: salicylate is the active
    ingredient in aspirin. But aspirin is better, it's got fewer side effects.

    I question whether you can psychosomatically heal a wart. But surely, since
    some warts resolve of their own accord, if you rub a stick on the wart it
    will sometimes go away. Works for other ailments too! Sticks - the miracle
    drug! If it doesn't work the first time, try again - eventually it's bound
    to work.
     
  7. How about periodical coatings of collodion? Should do the same thing.
    Without the stupid looking duct tape.

    Somehow I would think that duct tape should be used on the skin of
    robots, not humans. Ya know? Unless they come out with flesh-colored
    duct tape.

    The doctor that did the original research, and blind tests used what the
    medical community calls adhesive tape. But he found that duct tape
    works even better, and is a buck for enough to cure an entire city.

    I own a bridge in brooklyn, I'll sell you. It will cure you too.
    You get up on it, and jump off.
     
  11. Another possibility would be to use white glue then cover with a band aid to
    keep the dried glue on.
    The glue also this works well for removing cactus spines (the small ones you
    cannot see well) just put the glue on the area where the spines are let dry
    and peal off. Repeat if a few spines remain

    Us desert rats use depilatory wax to remove cactus spines. Apply, let
    harden, peel off with all the fine spines.

    Then there's the case where one of my dogs tried to get a bug from
    between the needles of a barrel cactus. The kind of needle with a
    curved end like a hook. My wife had to hold the dog still while I
    slid his tongue around the hook and got him loose ;-)

  13. Funny, but when I go up in the ceiling, I see ducts falling apart
    because the duct tape isn't doing its job. :-O

    Sealing ductwork is probably one thing that duct tape cannot
    do! There are many different grades. The stuff you get at the
    local Walmart is useless for its original purpose, but the duct
    tape that you get at your local HVAC supplier, is so sticky that if
    you wrapped it around your finger, you would "deglove" your finger
    if you pulled it too hard!

    What spoils the day even for the good HVAC type of duct tape is the
    tendency for galvanized ductwork to form a layer of zinc oxide on
    its surface after time. This is a white powder, and it foils the
    adhesive, just like sprinkling it with talcum would.

    How would "NU-Skin" work for covering a wart to
    hold in the skin's moisture? I know it works wonders
    for blisters, and also keeps you from picking off the
    loose skin after you bleed out the fluids from the blister.

    I don't think it would work at all. The NU-skin stuff seems
    to breath. If it didn't, the moisture would get under the
    stuff and make it release.

    Use the duct tape, or 3M adhesive tape. It has been tested,
    it works, and is "doctor approved".

    Yeah, thanks. I hadn't thought about that. Of course, it has
    to breath, otherwise the air couldn't get to the blister to help
    dry it.

    In news:boh3fh$d15$ (Chuck Harris):

    Speaking of nasty adhesives, I've got some residue that continues to
    "reappear" on a rubber/plastic surface, namely the pouch on an oscilloscope.
    I've cleaned it three times with a soaking of WD-40 (lubricant/penetrant,
    removes *anything* sticky) followed by an orange cleaner. After each
    cleaning it seems fixed, but 24 hours later it's tacky again. It's getting
    better, but I've never seen an adhesive that was this stubborn, and appears
    to be removed when it is not. It was some kind of military sticker, if that
    says anything. I don't have any GooGone... anyone have any other ideas?
     
  20. That's funny. They say that the white powder up there on the ducts is
    asbestos from the insulation. :-O
